a the president. kerry med with sergey lavrov. afterwards, he spoke of hope for de-escalation of tension. >> russia made a choice. and we have clearly stated that we believe it is the wrong choice, that is the choice to move troops into crimea. russia can now choose to de-escalate this situation. and we are committed to working with russia. and together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way for this entire situation to find the road to de-escalation. the united states is ready to work with all parties to make that happen and to make it happen as soon as possible. >> russian president vladimir putin has also spoken to angela merkel today. if diplomacy fails, the u.s. and its allies could put in sanctions against russia in a matter of days. howard fineman and michael mcfall. he's now a fellow at the hoover institution and an msnbc analyst. mr. ambassador, it's great to have you. give us your sense of the limits of this crisis. is there a sense in your mind right now based on your experience that vladimir putin has pushed as far as he's going to go or you think he might

with senator john kerry visiting this very spot, this very ground to pay respects to those that died here and crimea where we have correspondents and we'll get to all of that in the hour ahead. but i first want to set the keen here in the square. give you a sense of where we are. right now, we are on the edge of the independence square, one of the several roads that actually leads to the square. this is the first checkpoint, the first block aid that's still in effect. as we mentioned last night, protesters are still camping out here. you can see about a half dozen of them right here huddled before a fire trying to stay warm against the cold night air. it is about 3:00 a.m. here on wednesday morning. they are here because they refuse to leave until they say they see changes in the new interim government here in ukraine. the old president fled. you know that. he's now in russia. there's a new government here in power but until the protesters see the changes that they bled for and died for, they say they're going to stay here to continue to put pressure on and all the barricades are up. you

with the president's security team meeting then. but today secretary of state john kerry has been making the rounds and making strong statements. yesterday he called russia's actions an invasion, an occupation. today an incredible brazen act of aggression, saying that this is not the behavior of a g-8 country, that if it persists other countries could pull out of the g-8 in russia. already we've seen the u.s., canada, and now great britain pull out of those preliminary meetings. and he said that, you know, some lawmakers have called for even stronger response, i mean, saying why not immediate resorting to sanctions or something that is stronger than what has been presented already. well, today kerry said absolutely, that is a possibility, that nothing is off the table, and we could well see something like visa bans and asset freezes imposed against russia in the near future. candy? >> and the secretary also predicted that ukrainians are not going to sit around and take this invasion without doing something. >> reporter: right. i think he said in his word, they know how to fight. some people said wh
, secretary of state kerry toured independence square, the site of so much bloodshed just last month and paid his respects at shrine for those killed in the protests. after meeting with ukraine's new leaders he turned to russia. >> it is clear that russia has been working hard to create a pretext for being able to invade further. russia's talked about russian speaking minority citizens under siege. they're not. >> while the u.s. is preparing economic and diplomatic sanctions, kerry made clear a military option is not on the table. >> president obama and i want to make it clear to russia and to everybody in the world that we are not seeking confrontation. >> vladimir putin, who's been largely silent since troops began taking over crimea denied that forces from russia were even in crimea. >> translator: they were local self-defense teams. let me make my question more specific. did we participate in training those teams? >> translator: no. we did not. >> at least for today, president obama seemed to get the last word. >> there is a strong belief that russia's action is violating international la
, i want to thank you. and god bless all of you. >> secretary of state john kerry will be speaking for the american israel public affairs committee. his speech is scheduled to get underway at about 6 p.m. eastern. live coverage starts at 5:00 with her marked by senator chuck schumer of new york. and secretary kerry will leave tonight for ukraine. reuters is running a story about an increasing military threat that says, in part, russia's thek sea fleet has told forces in crimea to surrender. if they do not surrender by 5 a.m. tomorrow, a real assault will be started in the divisions of armed forces across crimea. that again, from reuters. earlier today at aipac, senator russiacain commented on and the ukraine. here's what he -- a bit of what he had to say. [video clip] >> i come to you with a heavy heart of what is happening in the ukraine. it is directly related to what is happening in the middle east him and obviously we know that what happens in the you middle east -- in the middle east is vital to the existence of the state of his -- israel. i will not go through the history of
of the president's leadership. >> the white house sent john kerry to meet the media this morning. he said russia might be kicked out of the g-8 alliance, we're going to try and isolate russia. lindsay graham on cnn was very critical of president obama. i just wonder, given that there are to be really honest about it limited military options for the u.s., just as when russia went into georgia during the bush presidency, whether it's just too easy for the pundits to say, well, let's grade president obama on how he's doing. >> yeah. i think we're in the stage now where everybody is sitting back and watching what the president is doing so they know how to criticize him. do they criticize him for talking too tough or not talking tough enough? do they criticize him for not taking action or taking action to distract from obamacare? there's going to be -- or from benghazi or whatever it is. there's going to be criticism even though we all pretty much accept that there's not a whole lot that the united states can do here. >> certainly, there will be critics that -- >> i'm not saying there shouldn't be cr
of the cold war. tomorrow, secretary of state john kerry is set to go to kiev where the crisis began. that's where we saw the deadly protests. the latest action is in crimea, a region along the black sea. strategically important and socially as well. it is important to russia because the russian navy has a base there. a warm water port here to the black sea. russian officials say they're trying to protect their citizens in the region, which is dubious to hear from many analysts. secretary of state called that a trumped up excuse. we have team fox coverage. wendell is live with reaction from the white house. first, let's get to eric shawn at the united nations. we're expecting a meeting to happen within the hour. right? >> yes, that meeting of the emergency meeting of the security council, 30 minutes from now here at the u.n. the third time the security council diplomats have gathered during the crisis. russia has called for the meeting so we'll have to see the implications of that. perhaps if it had to do with the supposed deadline. there's -- the ukrainian ambassador tells us there is a t
.s. chaims that number is -- claims that number is much higher, perhaps 16,000. jeact john kerry is i -- secrety of state john kerry is in kiev. when it was reported that russia had issued an ultimatum, although russia denied making a threats. today president obama said russia's violation of international law will be in his words a costly proposition. >>> the tensions over crimea drew gractly over the weekend as a steady stream of forces, pressure is growing across ukraine with al jazeera's journalists covering key developments. >> ukrainians are preparing themselves for war. in kiev where there has already been so much bloodshed, people expressed their allegiance to ukraine and their defiance of russia. it's fighting rhetoric and for now, it still is only talk. people have been responding enthusiastically to the call to mobilize. here there are young men, there are older men. people with military experience. people without any military experience at all. but yo who still want to take p. we have visited a total of three stations in and around kiev and already in the first few hours se
danger. secretary of state kerry reacted this way to putin. he is not going to be able to gain by. this he may have troops some period of time in crimea unless he resolves. this the fact is he is going to lose on the international stage. he that may find himself with asset freezes russian business. american business may call back there may be a further tumble of the ruble. there is a huge price to pay. >> but the only way russia will lose is if president obama moves quickly to punish that nation. the way to do that is to move against russian banks. last september, senator richard blumenthal of connecticut urged president obama to slap sanctions on russian banks because they were propping up the assad regime in syria. the president did not do that and assad is still killing innocent people today. but now mr. obama to do it. because that's the only way putin will pull back. the u.s.a. has to power, has the power to crush the russian currency the ruble which is already in trouble. freezing russian assets and boycotting russian banks would badly damage the russian currency. that's the
hope that they will. the cold war. >> john kerry said it's not another rocky iv. >> i thought it was -- the president's statement, this is not the chess match or the cold war. maybe it's not to the president and john kerry but it is to vladimir putin. he wants to rebuild the russian empire. that's why he pressures the baltic stakes and meddling in mullkova and troops are in georgia and he views ukraine as the crown jewel of that. there's an old loin about russia with ukraine is an empire, without it, it's a country. it's a vital part of his scenario for russia's role in the world, and we have to be vigorous in our response, and i think we can be, but first we got to realize who we're dealing with. >> senator john mccain, thank you very much. good seeing you again. >> thank you. >> signed up for obamacare and now desperately wants out of obamacare. but now he can't get out of obamacare. >> this educator makes more than the president and let's just say taxpayers didn't know about it. now they're furious. >> this is ridiculous. this is nuts. my wife -- i give my wife everything.
: secretary of state john kerry due to travel to kiev tomorrow. senator john mccain joins us from washington. earlier today he denounced the administration's foreign policy before the american israel public affairs committee. >> this is the ultimate result of a factless foreign policy where nobody believes in america's strengths anymore. >> charlie: later we'll be joined by three foreign policy experts who know russia and this crisis well. stephen hadley, former national security advisor to president bush, mike mcfaul, who has been ambassador to russia for president obama, and nicholas burns, a veteran diplomat in the state department. but first, senator mccain. welcome. >> thank you, charlie. >> charlie: tell me what it is about the foreign policy you consider factless. >> well, among other things, the entire approach to vladimir putin and russia, since the president came to office, and we had to have the reset that, in a conversation overheard, he said to tell putin i'll be more flexible. it may not be a cold war as far as barack obama is concerned, but vladimir putin who said the greatest
in ukraine continues. secretary john kerry meeting with his russian counter part. we'll hear from secretary kerry this hour to see how that is going. >>> we know second-hand smoke is not good for kids but a new study shows that it may be worse, much worse than we thought. is all "happening now." jon: a fox news alert. heated and personal argument breaks out during a hearing on capitol hill. welcome so the second hour of "happening now." i'm jon scott. jenna: imjenna lee. trying to get down to the why the irs was targeting tea party groups for extra scrutiny. the irs says they weren't. the woman at head of scandal once begin refusing what she knows. former irs official lois lerner making her second appearance before the house oversight committee. >> miss learner, why would you say tea party cases were very dangerous? >> on the advice of my counsel i respectfully exercise my fifth amendment right and decline to answer that question. >> moments after that, top democrat, elijah cummings clashing with republican chairman of the committee, darrell issa after issa tried to adjourn the hearing with
president vladimir putin a stern warning after he orders military exercises along bored of ukraine. kerry said putin should listen carefully to ukrainians who voiced the desire to change. u.s. does not view russia as a continuation of the cold war. this is not rocky iv. earlier in a televised statement, the drills will test whether the troops are ready for ac, whether threatened, denied, denials connected to the ukraine. but is that really just a coincidence. joining me fox news national security analyst. so ralph, the move of this military exercise today by putin on the board ukraine, convince deny? >> no. of course it's not. as far as john kerry's threat goes, he threatened to remove assad. putin is not scared of kerry or obama. there's no question what amounts to mobilization is called a readiness test. it's mobile saig to get troops ready to go. if putin would decide he wants to invade, it's absolutely 100% to do with ukraine. now, putin does not want to use military force. it's not his first or second option. but make no mistake. he is proud. he's vindictive. he's angry. he believes
. >> secretary of state john kerry will be on the ground here in ukraine in kiev later on today. expected to depart shortly from andrews air force base. we'll bring you that departure as it happens, i want to go to jim acosta at the white house. what is the latest in terms of diplomatic efforts on the u.s. front? >> president obama met with his national security advisers earlier this evening, they're not really looking at military options, at least according to what the white house is saying. they're focused on what can be done economically and diplomatically, you heard this talk over the weekend that u.s. and allies won't go to the g-8 summit this summer in russia. the u.s. is cancelling all military engagements that it has with the russians, that's a new step that took place this evening. you mentioned that secretary of state john kerry is heading over to kiev to talk about financial assistance that he is brings promises of from the united states and hopefully according to this white house from european allies, but the president believes that the world is on his side, not vladimir putin
to the government in kiev. martha: we had secretary of state john kerry arriving in kiev. so far president putin has reviewed to back down. >> first the assessment of what happened in the ukraine and kiev as a whole. this was an unconstitutional coup and armed seizure of power. bill: what can you tell us about the very tense situation in ukraine as of now? >> reporter: there is a heavy fog that descended over kiev on independence square. people are continuing to try to drum up moral support for their revolution that seems to be in jeopardy because of this tense situation particularly in the southern area of crimea. both sides have been incredibly disciplined in this standoff between ukrainian and military forces. but there were concerns about missteps. there were tense moments at the air base taken over by russian soldiers i in balaklava. they warned the ukrainian troops and said they would shoot. it was an example of how thing are on evening. in the black sea the ukrainian naval ships are blockaded by russian forces. it's a very compl -- very compld situation. russia and the ukraine worked together
of state john kerry. >> on the next washington journal, we will be joined by national political reporter robert cost to discuss the administration's proposed budget for fiscal 2015 and republican alternative. you can call in with your questions about the political unrest in ukraine for stephen from who is ambassador 1998-2000. washington journal is live every day at 7 a.m. eastern. join the conversation on facebook or twitter. >> president says russia has violated ukraine's sovereignty and that the u.s. is considering economic and diplomatic measures to isolate russia. the comments came during a photo israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu. this is 15 minutes. >> well, it is a pleasure, once again, to well, president netanyahu to the oval office there is no one i have met moore or consulted with more. it is a testament to the incredible bond between our two nations. i have said it before, and i will repeat, we do not have a closer friend or ally than israel, and the bond between our two countries or people that is unbreakable, and that is the reason why on the whole spectrum issues, w
from u.s. officials ranging from secretary kerry, secretary hagel right up to the top, right up to the president. you saw his comments yesterday. it is a sobering development. the fact is, u.s. officials were already telling us yesterday that those masked troops on the ground as of yesterday in and around crimea were russian so now you have a public in effect acknowledgment from the russian government that the president wants to send troops in there, this authorization. i think the other point is that you can see this as an intelligence failure by the u.s. officials had been telling us in the last 48, 72 hours that it was their assessment that the russians would not go in, and here you have it happening. it is not the way they did it in georgia in 2008. you remember when russia sent troops into the country of georgia in 2008 in a more sort of visible, tangible invasion, tanks rolling across the border. there are no tanks rolling across the border but you do have a public authorization of force and more of maybe you can call it a stealth invasion, perhaps. you have the helicopter
regime and vladimir putin that's distancing herself from the white house. >> john kerry meeting with his russian counterpart as we speak. shepard smith live for us in kiev uukraine. shep. >> gretchen, those meetings happening in paris. they were scheduled on another topic. supposedly they were unable to sit down. the word is very little progress made. there's not much room for russians to budge. meantime they are saying it's not their troops in crimea. we flew down to crimea today to get a firsthand look. from our eyes, the russians are not telling the truth. live coverage on gretchen carlson right after this. check it out. i can't believe your mom has a mom cave! today i have new campbell's chuy spicy chicken quesadilla soup. she gives me chunky before every game. i'm very souperstitious. haha, that's a good one! haha!
